IMM President Ekrem İmamoğluspoke at the groundbreaking ceremony for “Tuzla Aydınlık Evler”, which consists of 343 independent units. Noting that despite the economic crisis, the ministers spared most of their speeches to Istanbul during the budget negotiations in the Grand National Assembly of Turkey, İmamoğlu said, "The person who, trembling throughout the bureaucracy, could not sign without the approval of the political district head of a district and now became a minister, said, 'We cannot leave Istanbul to someone. ' says. In any case, this nation did not leave Istanbul to anyone; sent you," he said. Emphasizing that the increase in exchange rates has greatly reduced the purchasing power of the citizens, İmamoğlu said, “You have made every product, every property of the country, the sweat and labor of the citizens the country where the cheapest is sold. Mind your business. Every minister will talk about Istanbul and wear an epaulette here. Against whom? against a person. for one person. He will wear epaulettes here to make a person happy. 'Look, sir, how did I talk about Istanbul? Sir, did you talk well about the mayor? How did I talk?' Here's an epaulette. Well, wear as many epaulettes as you want. We receive epaulettes from our nation,” he said. Emphasizing that he is heartbroken in the face of poverty, İmamoğlu said, “The poverty of my people burns my heart. Despite that, we are laying the groundwork here. Despite that, we produce social housing. Despite that, 10 subways; We are trying to build 10 subways that you could not do, all of which were locked.”
KİPTAŞ, a subsidiary of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (İBB), held a groundbreaking ceremony for the social housing project “Tuzla Aydınlık Houses” in Aydınlı District. Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony, İBB President Ekrem İmamoğlumade striking statements on many issues, from criticism to the institution by the ruling wing, to the economic crisis.
“HOW HEAVY ISTANBUL COME TO THESE FRIENDS”
Emphasizing that KİPTAŞ succeeded in producing social housing in an economic environment where costs could not be calculated due to the increase in exchange rates, İmamoğlu stated that they closely followed the zoning problems in Tuzla. Noting that the ministers in Ankara allocated 50 percent of their speeches to Istanbul during the budget discussions in the Grand National Assembly of Turkey, İmamoğlu said, “How heavy this Istanbul was for these friends, how upset they were. They will be much more upset. Because 16 million are happy here. Not the happiness of 16 million; We understand that they own this place for themselves. They are in a fight over ownership. Shaking his hand throughout the bureaucracy, the person who could not sign without the approval of the political district head of a district and is now a minister says, 'We cannot leave Istanbul to someone else'. In any case, this nation did not leave Istanbul to anyone; sent you. He fired you, he fired. The minister of our great state is competing with the municipality. 'I'm building that subway. I'm building this subway.' Of course you will. You are the minister of the state, man of God. 'I am taking the metro from Gayrettepe to the airport.' I don't know from where, I don't know where… Of course you will. It is shameful. Can the municipality and the minister of state compete? Confused. They're baffled. I'm surprised. Look at the troubles of your country. 1 dollar is 15 liras. It was 4 liras 5-3 years ago," he said.
“YOU MADE IT UNABLE TO START THE ROAD”
Emphasizing that a European who puts 100 Euros in his pocket can enjoy a one-week holiday in Istanbul, İmamoğlu said:
“If my citizen puts 130 liras in his pocket -you gave up, let him take a week's holiday in Antalya from Germany- you wouldn't be able to set out. You cannot buy a bus ticket. You have made the citizen unable to travel. You have made every product of the country, every product of the country, the sweat and labor of the citizens the cheapest country, for 100 Euros, you get up and talk to us from there. Mind your business. Every minister will talk about Istanbul and wear an epaulette here. Against whom? against a person. for one person. He will wear epaulettes here to make a person happy. 'Look, sir, how did I talk about Istanbul? Sir, did you talk well about the mayor? How did I talk?' Here's an epaulette. Well, wear as many epaulettes as you want. We buy epaulettes from our nation.”
“I AM NOT HAPPY WITH THIS”
“Look, God is witness; Even though the economy of this country is good, I would like to applaud you to the fullest," said İmamoğlu, "But I am heartbroken. The poverty of my people burns my heart. Despite that, we are laying the groundwork here. Despite that, we produce social housing. Despite that, 10 subways; We're trying to build 10 subways that you couldn't do, all of which were locked. We made a budget in November. We have to make a new budget right now. They are talking about Kanal Istanbul. I'm going crazy, my God. He's talking about Kanal Istanbul. You ran a channel through the country, we don't know where the money is flowing. What is it? 'We will pass the big ships.' You're the guy who has never played a boat in a tub in his life. He could not pass the big ship through the Bosphorus, but he would pass it through the canal. Look at the state of the ministers of the state. I am ashamed. I'm not happy about it. I am upset,” he said.
“I WILL ACT BY THINKING MY GOVERNMENT AND MY NATION”
Exemplifying the importance of statesmanship through İsmet İnönü, Murat Karayalçın and Süleyman Demirel, İmamoğlu said, “You like it, you don't. There is a shortage, there is a surplus. But being a state person, having the ability to serve the state, understanding it, loving it, not loving it are separate. Don't love me either, love me. Does not matter. But I will act by thinking of my state and my nation. I will serve him. We do not have the consciousness of looking at a person and serving him. Don't get ready like that, we don't have it. But we will be ready in front of our state. We serve this nation. If we are already doing these tasks, we are doing it for him. We say, 'Let's not be ashamed of Allah'. We say, 'Let's not be ashamed of our country, our nation'. We say, 'Let's not be ashamed of the relics Atatürk left us,'" he said.
“HOW DO THEY CHANGE THE AGENDA BUT…”
Stating that the dollar is approaching the level of 15 TL, İmamoğlu said, “I am trying to read the words of the person looking at the economy, I cannot read it. They were not going to offend Mr. President or embarrass Mr. President on this issue… Do not embarrass the economy, the economy. Do not be ashamed of the nation. Think of people's money. Don't do it, for God's sake. For God's sake, everybody do their job. These folks are in trouble. Everyone should mind their own business," he said. Referring to the allegations of recruiting personnel to the IMM and "employees belonging to a terrorist organization" from the ruling wing, İmamoğlu said:
“A part of the opposition in the metropolitan municipality, who finds it wise to speak every month, those speaking on behalf of the AK Party group, which is the opposition of Istanbul, said, '45 thousand employees have been recruited'. 20 days have not passed; The minister said, 'It took 33 thousand.' For 12 thousand people, they themselves proved the lie. We also say; 'We recruited 20 employees. We are publishing this; transparent. Out of 900-3 people there, 'No, sir, terrorist, no, this is not the case…' How do they change the agenda? The dollar is 5 liras. Don't look there, look here. What is it? Terrorist. You are declaring a person wandering on the street a terrorist. The public institution has principles of recruitment. We have 15 thousand employees. They found 86-5 names, they keep turning them. Some journalists' manuscripts are also taking the initiative in this and they are trying to create an agenda from it. They are declaring 'terrorists' by giving the name of the person walking on the street in big and big institutions. If he's a terrorist, arrest him, brother."
"IF A TERRORIST, GO ARREST"
Emphasizing that the state cannot accuse a person of being a "terrorist", İmamoğlu said, "If the state detects the terrorist, it charges and arrests them. What country do we live in? Arrest. There are documents regarding the recruitment of a citizen who comes to us. It's clear in the law. You ask for your clean paper, it will come. I don't know what you get, it will come. You collect the file, you get the job. The employment contract is clear. The names of our 85 employees are not confidential; everybody knows. You'll see it here. You will see it with your TR ID number. How will that citizen enter his house now? How will he walk on your street? How will he get on the bus? How will it get to work? You called him a 'terrorist'. Does a state call its citizens walking on the street a 'terrorist', friend? Would a minister say this with his mouth? I'm upset. The state is the father, the mother. The ruler of the state represents the mother and father. Citizens are children. The state shows its warmth and compassion to its citizens. Wraps, wraps. Each of the 84 million citizens warms up equally at that temperature. None of them see themselves outside; whether from east, west, south or north. Let me be a victim; this language, whose language is it? Let's serve this nation. These folks are in trouble. His money is money. This country is the cheapest country in the world to someone, and the most expensive country for its citizens," he said.
“HOW MUCH WILL THIS NATION GET BREAD”
Sharing the information that the price of 2020 sack of flour, which they bought for Halk Ekmek for 127 liras in December 1, has increased to 325 TL, İmamoğlu said, “Maybe he will not be able to give it, either, due to today's exchange rate increase. Well, after the price of flour, which has tripled, how much will these people buy the bread? Stating that the rope has run out in the economic sense, İmamoğlu said, “I also studied economics. But I don't say 'I'm an economics professor' like some people do. I'm talking to those who know. I'm not saying 'I know the economy best'. I can't say anyway; not my place. I'm talking to those who know. The end of the thread broke. We need to recover as soon as possible for our nation. May Allah protect this country and this nation from ignorant rulers. And may he protect this nation from rulers who have become servants of ignorant rulers. Whatever a person says, God forbid the mind that says, 'You command it'. These folks are smart. In every house, every person has a 3-year-old or 7-year-old child. I admire the intelligence of our children. I admire the creativity and entrepreneurship of our young people. Where such a society exists, it must stand up. What are we dealing with," he said.
“THEY MAKES AN EXCUSE, IS NOT MY FRIEND”
Saying, “Despite all these people experiencing mental eclipses, we continue to work and we will continue to work,” İmamoğlu said to his colleagues, “The job of each of my friends will be to manage a business. He won't be able to breathe. If one worked yesterday, two will work today. Two non-working and three non-working companions are not my travel companions. Those who make excuses and do not focus on their work are not my travel companions. Service to the state requires such a service, brother. 'What can I do to fix this situation?' He will throw away his ego, arrogance and all his prejudices; He will serve his nation and country.” Saying, "We will not give these people an opportunity to change the agenda by producing jobs," İmamoğlu said:
“The ONLY CONDITION; SERVING THE NATION"
“Look, they will say 'terrorist'. Don't make it up, they're going to open an investigation. What else will they do? We, don't we know them? We know. We memorized all your games. My one hand is enough for your games, my one hand. That's how much we know your games. They will do this, but we will not give up. We will mind our business. We will serve our nation. We will not waste a penny of our nation. We will make good use of every penny of our nation. We will do our urgent work. We will save. We will use the mechanism within ourselves to provide the best service to our citizens. That will be our priority. Therefore, we are a public institution that has declared mobilization. All my friends have been working on the budget day and night for 1 month. They look at how they run their business most efficiently. About a month ago, we gathered my friends and established the 'Urgent Action Measures Working Group' to manage the economic crisis. We are working on it in every moment, in every moment. There is only one condition; service to the nation.”
